Advantages: NICE SCENT, LATHERS WELL AND LEAVES SOFT HAIR. MUM CAN USE IT TOO!
Disadvantages: PRICE MAYBE
Johnson's falls under the Johnson and Johnson brand. They have been producing baby related toiletries for over 100 years and a trusted brand.
Here we have Johnson's Baby Shampoo. It is a mild shampoo designed for your babies delicate hair. It has been created with a "no more tears" formula allowing to cleanse but we as pure as water if it ends up in the eye area. It has also been formulated to keep the hairs natural moisture without leaving any residue behind.
The baby shampoo comes in a clear plastic bottle. The bottle is rounded at the edges for easy handling and comes complete with a yellow flip top lid. This is handy and easy to open whilst also having a grip on the baby.
The information on the bottle is simple. There is a tear drop shaped label stuck on the front with the product name. On the back of this label (can be seen by looking through the back part of the bottle), there is some information about the shampoos formula, ingredients and how to contact Johnson's.
The bottle can be recycled and once opened is safe to use for 12months.
The shampoo is a transparent yellow colour. It is quite thick in consistency and you can clearly see the little bubbles floating around in the shampoo.
This is simple. Once you babies hair is damp, pour a small amount onto it and lather it up gently. Rinse ensuring no residue is leftover. Dry your babies hair as normal.

When I found out I was expecting my son, I was keen to buy the essentials! As I was going to be a first time Mum, I went with the most trusted brand being Johnson's and stocked up on their toiletries. Once of these toiletries was the Baby Shampoo and it is one I still use to this day. My son may no longer be a baby but I still love using this on his precious locks.
Until recently, my son had a little pony tail of power as Mummy calls it. Basically his beautiful blond hair was becoming overgrown and I couldn't bear to part with it. So I needed something that would keep this hair clean and soft. I will say though that on the day of his 2nd birthday, his Daddy took a bit of a stand with me and took him to get his hair cut and he does look more grown up but I still miss that ponytail!
So on with the shampoo I hear you say?
Well I like the colour as it is bright and you can see how much your are applying clearly. The bottle is conveniently shaped as we know how difficult it can be multi tasking when you have your baby submerged in water. The flip top is perfect for this use. The shampoo isn't too runny but isn't overly thick. The good thing is, when you pour a little onto your babies head, it doesn't immediately run off!
Now my son used to be fantastic in the small baby bath when we used to bathe him in the living room but for some reason he creates holy hell when we put him in the big bath. So it is a quick job and both me and his daddy have to tackle it together otherwise he goes unwashed.
I quickly wet his hair and put a tiny bit of baby shampoo right on his scalp. A gentle rub and it lathers up well into a white foam. It feels soft and smooth and smells clean and baby like! The next part is the most difficult as my son squirms and jumps around. I usually use about 3 jugs of water and due to commotion it gets tossed over the top and the shampoo is gone.
The shampoo has left his hair extremely soft like the day he was born. I like to sit and sniff it when I am cuddling him before bed and the scent is just so baby like. If you have smelt a new born you will know what I mean. Now whilst this leaves his hair clean and fresh, one thing it doesn't seem to tackle is his dry skin on his scalp. It is similar to that of cradle cap and seems to stick to the one area. I wouldn't say it makes it worse, it just doesn't help to improve it.
Of course with Johnson's logo being "best for baby - best for you" it is clear that I will have tried this baby shampoo on my own hair. I have long thick hair and do need quite a bit more than my son. It does lather up my hair nicely and leaves a softness and delicate smell. I am not keen on getting anything in my eyes and tend to panic but I did manage to get some in that area whilst rinsing and I am happy to report, it didn't sting at all. Personally though, I will only use this if I am low on my own shampoo as I feel it is designed to be tough on an adults hair issues such as dryness and dandruff but is ok as a quick, one off fix.
Johnson's might not be the cheapest on the market but it is a brand I trust and one I shall continue to use with any other children I may be blessed with. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for reading.
